Pensive Observations ... Questions ... I grew up in New England in the home of a pentecostal minister where I was encouraged to learn piano and write. In that strong religious enviroment I struggled with what is truth. I went on to seminary, but by the time I graduated my questions consumed me and it all came to a head. I had to break out and let go of the security of believing what I had been taught my whole life and replace it with the strength found in being true to myself. My music is my process. I hope anyone who has struggled with letting go of something or someone that is so safe and familiar to them can find strength and identificiation in my music.
